Crazy deal on this fish. I have only caught two other quillys before. One was just bottom riggin a crawler sucker fishin and caught the one in my lifelist picture. That was just a blind ass luck. Well the one before this was a sight fished catch. And last night after work I walked across the bridge on the Zumbro where I live and saw a pod of Quilly's in the shallows. But they saw me too and boogied. But I figgered they'd prolly come back so I went down along the bank and hid in the weeds. Casted my crawler chunk out and waited. And waited. In the stinging neddles and grass. But nothing bit and so I decided to stand up and look to see if they came back or not. Nope, they didn't. SO I decided to reel in. Damn it, I was snagged. SO I hadta wade out and get it. Such relief getting my legs wet. Them neddles suck! Well then I decided to check the other shallows to my right. There they were. I was hidden very well behind the bridge pillar. I lobbed my bait out in front of one. I saw it cruise towards my bait and hover over it then move on. No line twitch or nothing. So I reeled in and pitched it out in front of it again. Never spooked it. This time was different. It stayed hovering over my bait for a few seconds. Then when it moved my bait was gone. No line twitch, no tap tap, just my missing bait. So, I did what I do. "Gave it the onions". Wow, the thing just exploded and jumped outta water and finally came to shore. I was really worried I mighta foul hooked it. But I didn't, it was in the mouth stuck in the lower lip. Booyah!
